Hey guys, just curious: how do exit opportunities compare at the principal level vs. the senior manager level? Principal is about a year away for me, and I'm wondering if it's worth the slog.

Is Principal Product Manager role a good title/role? I'm not too familiar with titles in the product management world, but the work itself is interesting for the role I'm looking at. But the title doesn't really give me a sense of where in the hierarchy it might sit. Any insights?

Dilemma: I applied for a high school position. It looks like it went to someone else. I was contacted by the principal of another high school, same school district. This principal really wanted me to sit for an interview. Problem, though, is there is a TOXIC teacher in the department who I use to work with. So, I declined the interview. I think the principal was shocked. It's a great school. Would you have turned down a job because of ONE person?

Now, that I didn't get the call the next day, I'm very anxious and can't stop thinking about the outcome. Can anyone else who works at ZS confirm if the principal everytime calls in 1 day or it may take more time
